With the injection moulded plastic kit coming soon the above moto image could become an affordable reality. 

Many thanks again to GTX for buying the resin A-12 resin slab and making this a reality!  :)

So I'm thinking ---- the Avro Vulcan started off with near perfect triangular wing, but then the leading and trailing edges got changed because of one reason or another.  Do you think that the A-12 would go the same route ?

Probably not, unless they made some breakthroughs in low-observable materials.  The need to reduce RCS is what drives the shape.

Agreed.  Given the importance of exterior shaping to the low observability, external shape changes would only occur if it gave an improvement in this regard.
